Its been all over the news. Youtube hasn't even been breaking even. Bandwidth may be cheap compared to years ago which made video sites hot. However, with the quantity of videos being uploaded and streamed the bandwidth gets VERY expensive.

Hosting is expensive, but can't be more expensive than that 1.65B. Bandwidth will only get cheaper and cheaper - or iptv can't take off. If iptv takes off, Youtube will be market leader. Great buy by Google.

Yahoo and M$ just lost the iptv market. Once again, bill hasn't got it.

bandwidth costs are around 1 million dollars/month but that should go down as google owns fiber. Bandwidth prices still continue to go down.
